"NAMI Connection has given me a place to share my symptoms and feelings without being judged.  Here I can feel accepted and understood.  Such is a rare place" - Tom

"I first found NAMI while my marriage was falling apart.  I attended Connection meetings all over the Chicago area, and those meetings gave me a place to go to get some relief from a really volatile situation at home.  People simply listened to what I had to say, and that made a huge impression on me" - Scott
